Gilt City Atlanta Launch Draws Atlanta’s Finest
Last evening’s launch of GILT CITY Atlanta at the beautiful MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta) was simply refreshing. The atmosphere alone inspired me to want to go home and throw a splash of paint on something for no reason at all. The museum is located in the arts corridor of Midtown and provides the perfect backdrop for social gatherings.
The alluring edifice crawled with ATLiens who turned up to see what the GILT CITY buzz was all about. Notables such as Celebrity Chef Bren Herrera and Dancing With the Stars contestant Katerina Smirnov were dazzling as they mingled with guests and sampled edibles that were strategically displayed around the venue.
The private launch featured music by DJ Vickie Powell who caused a wave of excitement when she spun the 1977 classic “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers. It was definitely a lovely day for GILT CITY. Grey Goose sponsored the signature cocktails and Sun In My Belly catered the delicious southern-style cuisine to include jumbo grilled shrimp, baked macaroni and cheese, buttermilk biscuits and mini pastries. King of Pops provided icy treats and guests were quite surprised when servers passed around Moon Pies which instantly prompted conversations of the good old days.
Caren West Public Relations did an excellent job of fusing art, culture and southern hospitality all in a vibrant space that is sure to play host to lavish celebrations and art exhibitions for years to come. Oh, and I want to thank GILT CITY for my canvas tote complete with peach preserves, a classic bottle of Coke, an autographed Braves baseball and a signature GILT CITY postcard. You guys are awesome!!
